St Joseph Rouge 'Offerus' Jl Chave Selection 2006
The Chave dynasty needs no introduction. Since 1483, when England was enduring<br/>the War of the Roses, the Chaves have been been producing white and red<br/>Hermitage of the highest quality, their quality in point of fact almost<br/>embarrassingly better than that of all of the other producers on the famous<br/>hillside. The latest scion is Jean Louis, erudite and affable by turn, his<br/>natural ability enhanced by an international education, in particular at the<br/>University of California Davis. The only problem with Jean-Louis'<br/>Hermitage vineyard is that it only covers 15 hectares, huge, it has to be said,<br/>in terms of Hermitage itself, but tiny in the grand scheme of things.
The Chave family have been involved in wine making in the northern Rhone since 1481.Jean Louis Chave is the cureent boss and an exponent of organic viticulture.Most of the domaine's holdings are in Hermitage but also operates as a negociant in other AOC's although he has bought some vineyards in Saint Joseph.
